Title: ●National Wildlife Refuge System; Refuge-Specific Hunting and Sport Fishing Regulations, 2017-2018 

We propose to make additions to refuge-specific regulations for the 2017 to 2018 hunting and sport fishing season. This action is part of an annual update for the National Wildlife Refuge System that ensures adequate public notice of openings and changes. We operate hunting and fishing programs on refuges to implement the National Wildlife Refuge System Improvement Act of 1997 directives to facilitate compatible priority wildlife-dependent recreational opportunities.
